The average cost of a 4 pack of treatments for a K9 Advantix II for dogs runs between $47.99-$49.99 depending on weight break*.
What if I told you that you could get the same protection, with the same active ingredients, but COSTS much LESS? Tevra Brands generic alternative also repels and kills fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes.
